I am not saying I know everything there is about film production. As a screenwriter, my focus is on story and character, but I do have a handle on some of the basics like three point lighting, green screening, and wrangling erstwhile sound equipment. I’ve taken a required production class at USC (in which I had to write/direct/edit/produce four short films, and then crew on a fifth) have been on countless sets, and have been making and editing videos on Premiere and Avid for the past six years.
Regardless, learning video production is an entire art form, so this article is intended to be about “how I went about production for my web series Antidote 15” instead of “here’s film school in a single blog post.”I’m lucky that I had the help of Avery Xie on Antidote 15. He’s my savvy cinematographer, who makes the series come to life.
